Event description

Description

Explore a variety of surface design techniques such as appliqué, drawing with a sewing machine and hand embroidery, to create considered textile compositions using the shapes and textures of the natural forms of flora and fauna as inspiration.

You will be encouraged to play and experiment with fibres and fabrics and led through a variety of step by step stages in design and construction. After initial experiments with materials you will study and draw from natural forms and then interpret them into a textile format. You will combine and assemble your own chosen materials and work towards a final piece or pieces of embroidered textile art.

No previous experience necessary.

Please bring the following materials:

A basic sewing kit e.g. scissors (1 large and 1 small & pointed), pins, needles and thread.
Any fabrics/fibres/design inspirations that you would like to incorporate into your work. You will be given advice & ideas on how to source materials/fabrics for your final designs.
The tutor will provide a sewing machine to share, plus a basic kit of haberdashery/equipment but if you have a sewing machine please bring it along if you can.

Costs: £65
Days: 3 Saturday mornings
Times: 10:00 - 13:00
